This is where they call an electrician to finish their circuits. The problem is many electricians don’t like finishing a homeowners work because the liability, if something fails on that circuit, falls to them since they have a responsibility to make sure the circuit they are hooking up is wired correctly and follows the national electric code. You may be paying a premium if you do get an electrician to come out and do this work because of this extra liability.
